  1. Auto-Suggest Capability via Machine Learning in SMART NAS

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A302

    We build machine learning capabilities that enables the Shadow Mode Assessment using Realistic Technologies for the NAS (SMART NAS) system to synthesize, optimize, and "auto-suggest" optimized Traffic Management Initiatives (TMIs). Multi Level Multi View (MLMV) machine learning is used to identify similar historical situations (days, scenarios, or airport conditions) in the NAS. TMIs used in his ...

  2. Trajectory-Based Operations (TBO) Cost Estimation

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A301

    The Innovation Laboratory, Inc., proposes to build a tool to estimate airline costs under TBO. This tool includes a cost model that explicitly reasons about traffic demand and weather conditions in the National Airspace System (NAS), mathematical models for weather translation and ATM-impact, line of flight impacts of delay propagation, large quantities of historical NAS and airline data ("Big Dat ...

  3. Advanced Capabilities Medical Suction Device

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H1202

    An innovative Microgravity Compatible Medical Suction Device (MCMSD) is proposed for the efficient aspiration and containment of bodily fluids and vomitus in a microgravity environment without the release of infectious agents. A design developed and tested in the Phase I work consisted of a reusable vacuum shell and disposable cartridges. Cartridges were capable of retaining bodily fluid simulan ...

  4. ISS Testbed for Capillary Two-Phase Flow Device Qualification

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H1401

    Nearly all fluid systems aboard spacecraft are, or become, multiphase fluid systems, whether by design or default. This is due to the natural and simultaneous presence of gases and liquids in critical life support equipment, thermal control systems, power systems, and propulsion systems. With such a broad-base presence system designers must achieve a greater understanding of low-g fluid interfacia ...

  5. Passive, Reliable, and Robust Water Recovery from Brine

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H2001

    Brine de-watering is the final unit operation required to close the water cycle for life support aboard spacecraft. Though no such system has been demonstrated in space to date, numerous methods have been proposed and developed to various degrees. In this Phase I effort we propose to develop a versatile microgravity-compatible brine de-watering method that exploits the Brine Residual in Containmen ...

  6. Continuous Brine Evaporation Cartridge

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H2001

    A microgravity-compatible Continuous Brine Evaporation Cartridge (CBEC) is proposed for greater than 95% water recovery from highly contaminated wastewater without concern for precipitation of organic and inorganic solids. The CBEC utilizes a small, counter flow evaporation chamber and heat exchange technologies, which reduce Equivalent System Mass (ESM) for water recovery via an evaporation syst ...

  7. Convective Induced Turbulence Detection in Oceanic Trajectory-Based Operations

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A302

    We propose to develop a Convective-Induced Turbulence (CIT) hazard detection system for Oceanic Trajectory-Based Operations (TBO) based on satellite-based observations of lightning and other supporting data. The system is based on total lightning sensing as an indicator of the location and severity of in-cloud CIT. Total lightning activity will be measured over oceanic airspace at high temporal ...

  8. Nautilus Centripetal Capillary Condenser

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H303

    A Nautilus Centripetal Capillary Condenser (NCCC) is proposed for the microgravity compatible removal of water from a saturated air stream. Successful development of this technology will result in a device that effectively dries a hot, moist airstream to a dew point of no more than 10 degrees Celsius with no entrained water droplets in the dry air effluent. Non-mechanical inertial forces are emp ...

  9. Compact High-Resolution, Time-Resolved Intensified Image Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S106

    In situ planetary instruments face challenges that greatly exceed even the challenges of developing in-space Earth-orbiting instruments. Because of restricted payload masses for these ambitious missions, planetary in situ instruments must be very small (a few kg, at most), consume low power (20W or less), take up low volume (a few liters, at most), and be highly automated from instrument turn-on t ...

  10. Reservoir Scandate Cathode for Electric Propulsion

    SBC: E BEAM INC            Topic: H201

    We propose to combine the two most powerful cathode technologies into one hollow cathode assembly for use in ion and Hall-effect thrusters. Together, these technologies will boost ion thruster performance and life beyond current art. Reservoir cathodes have demonstrated, in microwave tube environments, lifetimes beyond 100,000 hours with no drop in output. Scandate impregnated cathodes have dem ...
